Surveys and compliance assessments
We all accept that items such as fire extinguishers, smoke detection and alarm systems need an annual inspection and possible servicing to ensure their fitness-for-purpose. In terms of life-safety, fire and smoke door assemblies are equally important and additionally expected to be fully functional in everyday conditions of frequent operation. They are often neglected, however. Even so, it is the responsibility of the building owner to ensure that these doorways are properly maintained and fully compliant with the performance expectations in line with their original certification.
Experienced DTC personnel will undertake surveys and compliance assessments on each doorway in a particular building. A written report with recommendations for any corrective action will be submitted, together with an estimate for the work. The cost of this report will be offset against any project work should DTC be retained to carry out the recommendations.
